one of which has the potential to decide who the next president of the united states will be. let's begin this hour's coverage in iowa where president obama kicked off a two-day coast-to-coast swing through eight states. he's calling it a campaign marathon extravaganza. likening it to an all-nighter. no surprise his itinerary consistents almost entirely of battleground states. cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is traveling with the president. >> reporter: wolf, president obama is hopping around the nation stumping for early votes and undecided voters. it's the kind of whirlwind tour you usually see in the last 48 hours before election day. the fact they're doing it 13 days before the ballots are cast is a sign just how important the early vote is to this campaign. now, from davenport, iowa, he heads to colorado, then he has stops in florida, virginia, again in ohio. he's going to las vegas, nevada, overnight. he also stops in las vegas -- in los angeles where he will be taping with jay leno and in chicago, illinois, where he'll be casting his own early ballot. h

of being president of the united states i applaud colin for standing with him. >> geraldo: in the supercharged preelection climate the comments by donald trump and john i sanunu have some crying racism. the associated press running a story right now that says 51% of americans now express a up from 48% in is that complicating the president's rekey election efforts? >> i just don't think that we know, geraldo. i think that when people oft oen wonder whether or not voters are honest with pollsters when they call when they are talking about black candidates. i just think the president s an incumbent now. he has a record he has to run on and defend. i really don't believe that colin powell would buck his party again and stick with president obama simply because he also s a black man. i just -- i think that this is not necessarily something that is going really sway this election. it is something to talk about which, in a very close election everything becomes an issue in the final couple weeks. we haven't been in an election this tight in so long and both sides are frea

and writing with hatred toward us, toward the united states. when i see that and see the kind of effort he put on to put these people together and make them like us, boy do they hate us it's the exact opposite. i came up with the expression the unlucky president. he is unlucky for this country. not unlucky for himself. if you look at the campaigns and what he did he had a lot of luck on the side. he limped over the finish line. he is unlucky for the country. >> i don't know if it is luck as much as he reads a teleprompter pretty well and they never gave it any scrutiny. nobody closed this election. it's still wide open. that raises the question if you were sitting across not from me but mitt romney you had a mess samming to send mitt what would it be? >> i think they have to get tougher. i think their convention was not good. you thought the democrats did a good job. he was talking about how they picked up something with their convention they are talking about women and unmarried women and the married women. they are working hard the democrats and working hard on specific groups that the class

. this is in response, not to united states policy, not to, obviously, the administration, not to american people. it is in response to a video. a film... that... we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it. but this is not a case of... protests directed at the united states, at large or at u.s. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive and... to muslims. we have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. >> sean: all right. so did you hear what he just said? he said the administration had no information -- none to suggest that was a pre-planned attack. and yet, two hours after it began, al qaeda claimed responsibility. so that was the big lie on september 14. now you fast forward a few days later. and here's what we were told, one week after the assault. >> our initial information -- and that includes all information -- we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a pre-planned or premeditated attack, that we saw evidence that it was sparked by the reaction to this video. and that is what we

in the united states market at artificial low prices. they asked for help. the commerce department said they would investigate and the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they cracked down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus the company was benefitted. they got the help they wanted. a company that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obama had not been tough on china. today mr. romney gave a major address on economic policy. this is part of his closing argument for the presidency. he delivered the speech at a company called kinsler construction services. mr. romney argued that president obama's stimulus had failed to help private companies. >> a new stimulus three years after the recession officially ended, that may spare government, but it won't stimulate the private sector than it did four years ago. >> that's what mitt romney said today at kinsler construction services in ames, iowa. you know that blissful moment waiting for the other shoe to drop? you can see david letterman scrutinizing the ties. you know you're in

attack. i didn't need this. remember, the president of the united states also should have known that that consulate was attacked twice in the six months before, attacked in april, attacked in june of there was a whole drill through the consulate, big enough for a truck to go through. the president should have had all of that information. >> greta: he may have known that and been dismissive of it. >> then owing an explanation to the american people why he didn't protect the ambassador there. there was no reason for this man to die. >> greta: i guess the reasonna i mean, besides the new information and email, we talk about it again because it's a very important topic, four americans were killed. i don't understand, why did they come out with the videotaped story. if it's a lie, it's a stupid lie because there is -- you know you will be caught because there is nothing to support it in this written trail. >> every coverup is stupid, right. the coverup is always worse than the crime. although i am not sure that's correct here. competent procedures could have prevented this. if the pr

of the united states? >> lfirst of all, the response has been unbelievable, beyond what anyone would have ever thought, as you probably know, and as you said. and it has been incredible, the president is probably the least transparent president in the history of the country. and i am hearing this, not as a negative thing, but i am viewing this as a positive, positive even for the president. people want to see what is going on with the president. and i offered $5 million, payable immediately to a charity of his choice -- now, that's his charity, if he releases his college records and applications. and passport records and applications. now, if you look into the past, greta, john mccain released the bushes released, clinton released... almost all that i know of, have released information and informs that i am talking -- informs that i am -- information that i am talking b. president obama hasn't released. i hope he takes me up on it. it would be a great thing for charity. truthfully, i think it would be a great thing for him and certainly for the country because there is so much anger about this

of the united states. and of western capitalism. it's very, very threatening. and i think that that's why you've had the billionaire class. you know, the minute barack obama -- i would actually say rather gently suggested that the millionaires and the billionaires should pay a little bit more, you had immediate cries of class warfare from the plutocrats, and very emotional. you know, there was an activist investor who sent an e-mail to his friends, the subject line is, battered wives. and in the e-mail, he compares mse and his fellow multimillionaires to battered wives who are being beaten by the president. he actually uses those words. >> and i thought it was really interesting, in your book, how you pointed out that bill clinton himself responded to obama's criticism by saying, you know, i would have done it a little bit differently. i think, you know, you can't attack these people for their success. and i think that's very relevant, because if you go back in time it wasn't always this way, but i think the shift really began with clinton and the new democrats. i think after, you know, walte

decreasing in the united states. increasingly squeezed. you see particularly powerful sectors, finance, oil. i would say the technology sector is going to be next in line getting lots of government subsidies. and meanwhile i think you see much less money spent on the things that middle class and the poor need. that's why you have this, you know, full bore attack on entitlements. right? why is the plutocracy so enthusiastic about cutting entitlement spending. because they don't need it -- >> where was the outrage when the $5 trillion or $6 trillion in bailouts was coming their way. >> i really worry about that. the other thing that i worry about is you do start actually stifling economic growth. so you know, if you want my dystopia scenario of the united states is america is moving into a more latin america style economy. a few incredibly rich having just great lives, and then people at the bottom really struggling. >> we both lived that. we saw that in russia, it happened in the mid '90s. >> you both cut your teeth in journalism covering russia. what do you take away from that that is relev
